Excavatons at the pyramid of Menkaure

Talking Pyramids (Vincent Brown)

Thanks to Vincent and his reader Todd for sharing photographs of an area adjacent to the pyramid of Menkaure at Giza where excavations of some sort are apparently underway with the aid of heavy machinery. See the above link for the photos.

When my wife and I visited Menkaure's pyramid in 2000 our knowledgeable guide said that it was suspected that there were buried boats in the area where the current excavations are taking place, between the pyramid and its satellite pyramids.
